Ah, Moon’—and Star!
You are very far’—
But were no one
Farther than you’—
Do you think I’d stop
For a Firmament’—
Or a Cubit’—or so?
I could borrow a Bonnet
Of the Lark’—
And a Chamois’ Silver Boot’—
And a stirrup of an Antelope’—
And be with you’—Tonight!
But, Moon, and Star,
Though you’re very far’—
There is one’—farther than you’—
He’—is more than a firmament’—from Me’—
So I can never go!
